Warning to Israel

1People of Israel, listen to this message! This is what the LORD said about you, Israel. This message is about all the families that I brought from the land of Egypt.

2“There are many families on earth, but you are the only family I chose to know in a special way. And you turned against me, so I will punish you for all your sins.”

The Cause of Israel’s Punishment

3Two people will not walk together unless they have agreed to do so.

4A lion will roar in the forest only if it catches its prey. A young lion roaring in his cave means he has caught something to eat.

5A bird doesn’t fly into a trap unless there is food in it. If a trap closes, it will catch the bird.

6If people hear the warning blast of a trumpet, they shake with fear. If trouble comes to a city, the LORD caused it to happen.

7When the Lord GOD decides to do something, he will first tell his servants, the prophets.

8When a lion roars, people are frightened. When the Lord GOD speaks, a prophet must prophesy.

9Go to the high towers in Ashdod and in Egypt and announce this message from the LORD: “Come together on the mountains of Samaria. See the great confusion there because the people don’t know how to live right. See how cruel they are to others. They take things from people to hide in their high towers. Their treasuries are filled with the things they have taken in war.”


11So the Lord GOD says, “An enemy will surround your land. They will break down your strong walls and take the things you have hidden in your high towers.”

12The LORD says, “A lion might attack a lamb, and a shepherd might try to save the lamb. But the shepherd will save only a part of that lamb. He might pull two legs or a part of an ear from the lion’s mouth. In the same way, most of the people of Israel will not be saved. Those who live in Samaria will save only a corner from a bed, or a piece of cloth from a couch.”

13This is what the Lord GOD All-Powerful says: “Warn the family of Jacob about these things.

14“The people of Israel sinned, and I will punish them for their sins. And when I do, I will also destroy the altars at Bethel. The horns of the altar will be cut off and fall to the ground.

15I will destroy all their houses, the winter houses and the summer houses. The houses of ivory will be ruined. Their many houses will be destroyed.” This is what the LORD said.
